Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will serve his 14-year sentence at a federal prison in Colorado -- just like he requested.

The Chicago Tribune reports that he recently received word from federal prison officials that he'll be assigned to a low-security prison near the Denver suburb of Littleton.

Blagojevich was convicted on corruption charges last June. He's due to report to prison by March 15th.
